Does anyone have this issue: Our institution has many ICU's and also uses an "ICU Float Pool" as well as STAT Nurses and a Designated ICU Nurse position. These nurses help out on floor, and take an assignment in the ICU as needs arise. This is the question: When a sick admission comes in,we in the ICU feel our own staff nurses should admit the sick patient, not a Float. A couple of Charge Nurses are assigning these sick ICU patients to Floats who do NOT have the experience that we in the ICU have, do not have the experience of the specific ICU. Can anyone share experiences, thoughts? Thanks!
